Cavalry Of Waves - Poem by Annie Cordelia Adams

I miss the sea and its cavalry of waves
I miss the salty air and salty breath
My heart leaps to jump into its arms
I miss the subtle breeze felt from afar

My love for the sea is like a dream
No shadow, taste, smell, or sound
In which I sail forever over voyage
Not comprehended as I solely engage

Impatient am I for want to run to sea
I could leave everything behind me
I’ve become restless in my care
If only there were hope I might fare

And on to sea and on to unending waters
Where life is love and skies are bliss
To the undying lands where sleep is naught
Where no heart takes a single thought

The waters of the sea are never ending
Impatient am I for want to run to sea
They come from no place; stay everywhere
But it does not matter for I am loosely there

The sea will not run to me so quickly
Thus, I will run to it and meet my end
And sparks another ambition, unclear what it will be
Then goes ever on a cycle I hardly comprehend

    My passion for the sea is the same as yours, as I have been living by the side of the sea for more than 50 years. A good tribute to the sea is found in your poem. (Report) Reply
